          The plastic bans vary between states and territories, as does the stance on compostable bioplastic alternatives. Visit our handy state-by-state plastic bans guide here.

          QLD permits bioplastic cutlery certified to AS 4736 - Vegware's CPLA cutlery has this certification, certificate viewable on our certifications page.

          NSW, VIC, SA, ACT and WA do not permit the use of compostable bioplastic cutlery regardless of certification achieved. If your business operates in these states, consider instead our wooden or paper cutlery alternatives.

          Please note Vegware are not responsible for or party to any current or future plastic bans in Australia. Any questions or concerns regarding the plastic bans and their potential impact on your business should be directed to your state EPA (Environmental Protection Authority).

          PLA (Polylactic Acid) is a compostable bioplastic made from plants - primarily corn - not fossil fuels.

          Manufacturing bioplastics such as PLA produces significantly less carbon than conventional plastics such as PS or PET, and all Vegware PLA products are commercially compostable where accepted. 

          Clear PLA varieties are suitable for cold use only, however CPLA (Crystallised PLA) is suitable for both hot and cold.

          More info...

          All Vegware products are commercially compostable - this means they will break down entirely in under 12 weeks in an industrial composting facility. If organics / industrial compost collections are available this means your Vegware cup, lid, plate, fork & napkin can all be disposed of alongside your leftover chips.

          More info...

          Vegware's disposable catering supplies are all designed with same day / immediate foodservice in mind, not for long-term use. So we can't really say how our products perform in the freezer or microwave, as they haven't been designed or tested for it.

          If you intend to use any Vegware products outside of the intended purpose, we always recommend requesting samples and testing their suitability for yourself. The samples are free - just let us know what you're after.

          Any clear PLA items are not microwave safe.

          Certainly! Contact us today to ask about pallet pricing.

          Green is Gorgeous

          Vegware's range of disposable catering supplies has been designed with an eco look and feel, namely our iconic Green Leaf Band. Not only does Vegware look great, it lets customers know that your business is dedicated to preserving our environment & saving the planet.

          We do not (and will not) manufacture or supply any conventional plastics - you could call this our brand philosophy! Consumers & waste collectors alike can be confident that if it says Vegware, it's green!
